FRIESLAND CAMPINA HELLAS S.A. is one of the leading Greek dairy companies with a presence of more than 80 years in Greece.
Having intense nationwide trade activity, in conjunction with the internal processes of the finance department and specifically the invoice issue, dispatch and approval processes, the company wanted to implement a solution, which would automate it to the greatest degree, while reducing time and cost.
